Medocity Launches New Virtual Care Platform for Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)

by | Jul 11, 2016 | News

PARSIPPANY, NJ – Medocity, Inc. is proud to announce the launch of Medocity CHF, a new virtual care platform specifically designed for healthcare professionals and payer organizations to manage, facilitate and coordinate care of patients with congestive heart failure and associated co-morbidities.
Medocity CHF is a comprehensive virtual care management platform that leverages the company’s proprietary, next generation telehealth and remote patient monitoring technology. With CHF-specific clinical protocols, care plans, educational resources, and patient guidance, the new platform builds upon the success of Medocity’s industry leading iCancerHealthTM product.

“With this launch, we’re excited to help make a difference in the lives of patients suffering with CHF.” said Raj Agarwal, President and CEO of Medocity, “Chronic conditions management represents the next phase in our company growth. Medocity CHF builds upon the experience we’ve gained in-market with virtual cancer care over the past 2 years, and we’re now applying our iCancerHealth learnings to a broader set of chronic conditions.”

Both Medocity CHF and iCancerHealth enable virtual patient-centered care delivered outside the hospital setting with:

  • improved patient-clinician engagement through shared access and connectivity
  • robust symptom management and real time access to care professionals
  • customized guidance, reminders, education and community based resources for patients and caregivers.

By combining interactive chronic disease care, virtual patient support, and patient-reported data capture in the home, clinicians can proactively intervene to avoid unnecessary emergency department visits and hospital readmissions. Patients gain a better understanding of the impact of medication adherence, nutrition and exercise have on their condition and, with higher engagement, are motivated to become more active participants in their self-care.

Agarwal added, “The launch of Medocity CHF is the next step toward our company’s vision: healthcare professionals and patients working together in real-time to achieve the right level of care, when and where patients need it most – at home.”
